Dec. 15-2016 A new 133,500-ton cruise ship, which will be the third vessel in the company's Vista class series, will join the Carnival Cruise Line fleet in late 2019.  The ship, under contract with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, was originally designated for the P&O Cruises Australia brand.

Nov. 9-2010 At approx. 6 am yesterday morning (U.S. Pacific Standard Time), a fire was detected in the aft engine room aboard the cruise ship Carnival Splendor. The fire was extinguished and there were no injuries to guests or crew. The ship has been operating on auxiliary generators throughout the day and engineers have been unable to restore additional power to the vessel. As a result, the current voyage is being terminated. Tugboats are currently en route to the ship which is located off the coast of Mexico, approximately 150 miles south of San Diego. The tugs will tow the vessel to San Diego in an effort to get the guests home as quickly as possible. Several key hotel systems, including air conditioning, hot food service, flushing toilets and telephones are not available.The ship’s crew is actively working to restore partial services. Regular announcements apprising guests of the situation began at approximately 6.30 am. Guests were initially asked to move from their cabins to the ship’s upper open deck areas. At this time, guests have access to their cabins and are able to move about the ship. Bottled water and cold food items are being provided.

Nov.16 - 2010 Carnival Cruise Lines has cancelled voyages of the Carnival Splendor through the departure of January 9, 2011, to allow time for repairs following an engine room fire last week. The ship is scheduled to re-enter service on January 16, 2011.

Dec.22 - 2010 Carnival Cruise Lines has cancelled additional departures of the Carnival Splendor including the January 16, 23, 30 and February 6 and 13, 2011 voyages to allow for additional repair time following an engine room fire aboard the vessel in November. The ship is now scheduled to re-enter service February 20, 2011. The ship is currently in San Diego, however, it will sail to San Francisco in mid-January where repairs will be completed at a dry dock facility.

July 15-2013 Conclusion: A 15-minute delay in activating the Hi-Fog system allowed an engine room fire to spread to overhead cables, knocking out power to Carnival Splendor in November 2010 off the coast of Mexico, according to the US Coast Guard's final casualty report.The vessel suffered a major mechanical failure in the No. 5 diesel generator, igniting the fire. Post-casualty analysis revealed the Hi-Fog system for local protection was activated 15 minutes after the blaze was sparked. The delay was the result of a bridge watchstander resetting the fire alarm panel on the bridge.
